Angmering Village Life
Angmering Parish Council are unable to make changes to their website or publish agendas and minutes of meetings at present. The host of their website - Arun District Council (ADC)- have had a problem in the last month in uploading the web pages/files of some parish councils to their server and, currently, are unable to find a solution. We are assured that the Parish Council have been pressing ADC to resolve the issue. If residents wish to see various minutes, they can be viewed at the Parish Office. Angmering Village Life has offered to upload minutes through its own host's server while the problem persists at ADC.
Angmering in Bloom (AIB) is looking at creating a 'Friends of Angmering Community Centre' who can be involved in providing ideas and help in enhancing the areas surrounding the Community Centre. A 'drop in for a coffee and a chat' is being held tomorrow (Thursday 28 November) from 16:30 - 17:30 and on Friday 31 January 2014 from 16:00 - 17:00 at the Angmering Community Centre. If you cannot come but are interested then please contact AIB at firstname.lastname@example.org
A Christmas Market will be held at Angmering Community Centre on Sunday 1st December between 10 a.m. and 2.00 p.m. With more than 20 stalls and a very wide variety of goods to see, this promises to be the local market well worth a visit.
If you enjoyed looking round the craft stalls at the summer market on Fletcher's Field, you will delight in seeing some of those people plus so many more interesting items - and mainly with a Christmas theme - for presents and table decorations. Have you still got that "hard-to-buy-for" person? Looking for something for the person who has everything? An original table decoration? Stocking fillers? Or perhaps you have a Birthday present to find around Christmas too? Or why not just treat yourself?
The list of stalls and goods is inspiring: Jewellery ; books; bags; gloves and scarves; eco-friendly household, personal and pet products; corsages; candles; pot pourri; table and tree decorations; handmade soaps; beauty products; glass items; art and photographic prints; knitted products; toys; creative memories ideas; original cards; bread and cakes - and a chance to order a Christmas cake; English wines and much more.
Refreshments will be available - sit and have a rest after your shopping! And it's FREE to go in and look.
